Spring Clean Your Finances with Kelly Whalen: The Home Hour Episode 31

We’re well into spring, and for many of us with school-aged kids, summer break is almost here. Is your budget ready for the onslaught of camp options and kids begging for snacks all day? That’s just one of the things Kelly Whalen of The Centsible Life and I discuss in today’s episode, where she gives us some great tips for “spring cleaning” your finances, from home to work to kids.

First up, though, our regular style expert Shana Draugelis is here to answer a burning question: how do you find comfy summer shoes without succumbing to buying sports or “comfort” sandals? We also answer a listener’s question about what to wear with gladiator sandals (especially if you have shorter legs).
